In the wild, the showy Blazing Star or Gayfeather occurs mainly in prairie or open woodland, on dry, stony ground in Eastern and Central North America.  This species was collected by Meriwether Lewis near the Charles Mix-Brule County line in South Dakota on September 12th, 1804.  Liatris are members of the Aster family whose flowers open from the top of the inflorescence downward.  The flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, and are good for cutting. zone3,zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
